You might have got the impression I hate consoles. This is not true, I just hate it when they try and do the same things as a PC but do it badly and charge you more for the privilege (Sony, Microsoft, I’m looking at you!)… Nintendo on the other hand have a different aim in mind, games that can be enjoyed by everyone. They don’t fill their games with blood and shootymen but that does not necessarily make them childish, the Zelda games are harder and longer than anything Infinity Ward have released, the Pokémon series is far more complex than it looks at first glance and despite the cartoon critters can be enjoyed by all ages (apart from 14-18 year old males as the lack of an adult only rating will put them off).
So as a result I have had a DS Lite for a while, I didn’t upgrade to the DSi as I felt very little had changed (it also lost the GBA backwards compatibility) and I didn’t get any of the other slightly different models that Nintendo released. Until now.
